Avoid costly mistakes

The need to acquire and update international trade skills to compete in a global world is essential.

The Chamber’s International Training team has a variety of courses, seminars and events which can be specifically tailored to suit your needs. We organise courses in order to equip you with the necessary knowledge to avoid mistakes and to grow your international business. We cover a wide range of topics that are essential to businesses that trade overseas including understanding and completing export & import documentation, customs declarations, letters of credit, other methods of payment, Incoterms and of course Special Procedures available to importers and exporters to waiver, suspend or drawback customs duties.

Our speakers are ideally positioned to answer your specific questions.

HMRC Special Procedures Awareness Seminars - See what’s coming up below!

Under any authorisation process HMRC checks that the company has relevant written procedures and skilled staff and determines how to use and maintain records for each procedure so it is important to understand your obligations. Understanding these procedures can help in identifying which scheme can be used in a given situation, minimise import duty payments and subsequently benefit cash flow within your business.
